Service-specific keys

Amazon SNS uses the following service-specific keys. You can use these in policies that restrict access to Subscribe requests.

  • sns:endpoint—The URL, email address, or ARN from a Subscribe request or a previously confirmed subscription. Use with string conditions (see Example policies for Amazon SNS) to restrict access to specific endpoints (for example, *@example.com).

  • sns:protocol—The protocol value from a Subscribe request or a previously confirmed subscription. Use with string conditions (see Example policies for Amazon SNS) to restrict publication to specific delivery protocols (for example, https).

Important

When you use a policy to control access by sns:Endpoint, be aware that DNS issues might affect the endpoint's name resolution in the future.
